Lovely spring morning

The sky is almost clear — just some patchy clouds.  On the way home from work today we passed some forsythia just starting to bloom.  It’s not terribly warm today — about 50℉ — but we don’t have a wind today, so it feels great in the sun.  Trees are budding, and we’ll have leaves soon.  I wore a flowery shirt, and spring-ish pants to work; I looked like a big peach!  A lot of fun, though.

Lovely forsythia

I have to eat an early lunch today — I’m off in about 45 mins.  I have a ton of posts to catch up on, but I also have lots of time coming up, so I’ll get them read.  For now, happy spring!

    • In the Yucatan, there are no natural sources of fresh water but one — the cenotes. (se-Note-ays) The Yucatan is primarily a limestone formation, and when rainwater drips down through the grass and soil, it erodes giant holes in the ground — filled with the freshest water you could imagine. These cenotes were sacred to the Mayan people, sites for sacred rites, as well as sources of drinking water. Many cenotes are like bubbles in the ground — occasionally they break open to the air, like the one on the home page of my blog. If you search “cenotes” on the blog, you can read of my time spent in one or another of these crystal clear water caves.

I love to read your thoughts...
